12 Exciting WebVR Demos and Experiments

WebVR is an exciting JavaScript API that makes it possible to use virtual reality headsets in web apps. It allows developers to create immersive VR experiences that can be accessed directly in the browser and are compatible with most head-mounted displays.

In this article we will take a look at some of the most exciting VR demos and games that you can try right now. To run them you will need a compatible browser, as well as a headset such as Google Cardboard, HTC Vive or similar. If you don't own a VR device you can still enjoy the demos in regular 360° mode.
